UBUNTU PIES

UBUNTU PIES PARTNERING WITH COMMUNITIES TO ENGAGE THE YOUTH



The only thing we love more than our pies is helping young people work towards achieving their full potential as they use their skills and talents to impact their communities.


What if making a profit was equally important as our passion to help young people work towards achieving their potential while making a difference in their communities? This would result in us making great tasting Ubuntu Pies! Profits from Ubuntu Pies allow us to invest in what we are passionate about- young people. We mean it when we say - The only thing we love more than our pies is helping young people work towards achieving their potential while making a difference in their communities.

Ubuntu is a philosophy that offers us an understanding of ourselves in relation with the world. Ubuntu is a way of life and is often translated to “I am because we are”. In other words, a person is a person through other people. Although the word “Ubuntu” comes from southern Africa, the concept is universal throughout Africa under various names. Ubuntu dictates a spirit of compassion, sharing, kindness and respect towards other people and that is how we pledge to conduct our business at Ubuntu Pies as we work with young people to help them impact their communities.

UBUNTU PIES AND THE YOUTH

We are passionate about helping young people use their talents and skills to make a difference in their communities. We make money from pies and then give some to a cause we are passionate about. We can’t take it with us!

We're not superheroes…(sometimes we wish we were). We are just another family trying to pie (pay) it forward by playing our small part in giving smiles to young people as they experience the joy of impacting their communities through the use of their talents and skills.

UBUNTU PIES

Our meat pies are a mix of cultural tastes drawn from different continents. With roots from the Cornish pasty in Cornwall England, fused with recipes from Zimbabwe and mixed with a Canadian flavour, our meat pies are baked to create a memory or satisfy that nostalgia. Fresh baked from the oven to your dinner table or while on the go, it’s a taste to savour .There is not much you cannot put into our handcrafted flaky puff pastry. Our dessert pies can be enjoyed with ice-cream, coffe, tea, or best of all…just as they are.

We are proud to source some (we wish it was all) of our ingredients from local farms and producers.

SCHOOL HOT LUNCH

Through partnerships with school councils, we take care of the food stuff so schools can focus on schooling stuff. Our hot lunch program offers pies, rice bowls, salads, vegetable and fruit cups. Each food item is individually wrapped and labelled to make sure we hear less of "I didn't get my food".

All our meals are prepared in an Alberta Health inspected commercial kitchen and operated under strict food safety and quality control standards.

We are not gluten-free but we are gluten aware. In the preparation of gluten free meals, we make every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction and take precautions to avoid cross contamination. However, we still cannot provide a 100% guarantee that the meals will be gluten free.
